Hi,

I apologise for my ignorance but I need help to make a bootable cd for a computer that will not boot at all. It says that it cannot read from the HDD and when I go into the BIOS I have 2 options HDD or CD. Hence need help to make bootable disk.

I've looked on the internet as to how but have got confused so decided to come to the people who I know will help me and can answer my extremely blonde questions...... Apologises to all blondes.

 

The computer is a Toshiba running Windows XP home but it has been updated very much so I don't know what service pack it might have if any??

 

Can anyone help me.

Thank you

Cate

What is the exact wording of the error message, please?

 

Is the hard drive properly reflected in the main screen of the BIOS?

 

What model Toshiba system is this?

 

Louis

Hi Louis,

Thank you for replying and I apologise for mot having come back to you but the problem is now fixed.

I'M still not sure why initially the XP disc didn't work but eventually third time  I might add it loaded and the machine is now up and running.

 

Thank you again.

Cate
